Why do we need Bird Control?
- Defacement:Bird droppings frequently deface public buildings, private dwellings, ledges, windows and footpaths. Inside, droppings may fall on machinery, tools, structural timbers and clothing. Accumulated moist droppings may serve as a medium for fly breeding and development and making it a compelling reason for bird control.
- Property Damage:Droppings may stop up gutters and downpipes, causing roofs to leak. Roofing life can be cut dramatically by prolonged bird usage. The droppings can be responsible for rust and corrosion and the uric acid content can mar the paint on automobiles, machinery and buildings making it necessary for the residents to have bird control.
- Disease Potential:Some virulent diseases can be spread by pest birds. Some important fungal diseases are closely linked with bird droppings which serve as a disease reservoir. The better known diseases include cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, psittacosis, gastroenteritis, encephalitis, toxoplasmosis and aspergillosis.
- Associated PestsCertain insects, mites and ticks capable of affecting the well-being of humans and animals can be found living on birds or in their nests. Such pests include: bed bugs, carpet beetles, clothes moths, cadelle beetles, red poultry mite, tropical fowl mite, pigeon tick, spider beetle, lesser house fly, larder beetle and many others.
- Contamination of Food and FeedPest birds may not directly consume much food but they are capable of contaminating vast amounts. Droppings may contain vast numbers of viable organisms capable of adversely affecting one’s health. Contaminated livestock feed and food intended for humans must be discarded, thus increasing costs. Food can also be contaminated by feathers, ectoparasites, debris from birds’ nests and dead birds.
- NoiseStarlings in particular can create a considerable disturbance when roosting together. This exasperating noise may prevent people from sleeping and a strong reason for getting bird control.
- Safety HazardAccumulations of bird droppings on footpaths, steps and fire escapes may render them hazardous to pedestrian traffic.
- Displacement of Native BirdsColourful native birds are often compelled to leave an area when incapable of competing against aggressive pest species for food and nesting sites.
Methods adopted by us for Bird Control:
Bird Control by Proofing Measures: The proofing measures for bird control are provided by us in a professional way so that the perching / roosting places are denied to the pest birds.
- Spike System
- Net System
